3.5/5 Some fun ontological exercises, not especially focused. Veers too late from a dull (though original) dystopia.

Reminded me to read A Deepness In The Sky.

Here I feel the ISO 8601 standard is getting over-excited.

"Young and old"
"Men and women"
"Pregnant and not"
"Malnourished or... um... with existing comorbidities"

4/5 a quick read light on twists, heavy on the paranoid themes of diminished-trust and digital-technology. Kunzru deeply understands the former, and doesn't discredit himself over-addressing the latter.

I'd recommend it for a book-club or if you yourself need a book to recommend.

Now billed as an "executive chair" it had been designed to sit in the lobby.

Villeneuve leads with AT&T’s massive corporate debt. Media outlets have bent-backwards trying to sell any other story. That next sentence from The Verge is my case-in-point.

Evident to me that without some very public reckoning Feinstein would never have been bothered.

YouTube (and Google) provide "help" with the galling premise that it's not software and exhibits behaviors rather than features. (related: youtube.com/watch?v=VUAkZPJeiB)

Their support system is itself a platform of unacknowledged software and can only give a featureless screech of "feedback." support.google.com/youtube/thr

It's an especially callous way to suck shit.

Can we have glimpsed the future in CG-simulation? It's a strong case.
